For the past 3 years I have been co-managing an 8 acre certified organic farm focused on sustainable orchard management and fruit production and direct market sales.
In the short term, I’m looking for an established orchard or mature fruit trees/berries to direct market outlets (Farmer’s Markets, CSA, local restaurants) . If you have perennial fruits in need of care I specialize in rehabilitating mature trees and getting them back to production- adding value and beauty to your land in exchange for harvest. I also run a rabbit meat grazing operation and could always use more pasture space.
In the long term looking to plant 5 acres of fruit trees, ideally on land that I own that has adequate soil and water and access to markets.
good soil, drainage, and water at a minimum
5 years farm worker
3 years orchard co-manager, crew leader and farmers market manager
Seek mature fruit trees and usable pasture
Purchase 5-10 acres to plant a well designed orchard
none, though open to ideas
I'm a good listener and aim to be respectful with people in all interactions. I would continue to operate a business that thinks critically about how to improve the lives of others: offer a living wage to any employees, use regenerative farming practices, seek to improve food access through donations and sliding scale pricing to consumers
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
